Endothelial cell antibodies associated with novel targets and increased rejection.


The initial contact point between a recipient's immune system and a transplanted graft is the vascular endothelium. Clinical studies suggest a pathogenic role for non-HLA antiendothelial cell antibodies (AECAs) in allograft rejection; however, evidence linking AECAs of known specificity to in vivo vascular injury is lacking. Here, we used high-density… (More)
